    Anyone seen a good book on chicken (duck) gardens that they would recommend? Might as well combine my obsessions and feed us all![​IMG]

    (Yes, I did post it in the chicken forum under feeding category. Thought maybe a few duck owners might have suggestions as well).

    I don't know of exactly what you're looking for (but would love to find one, myself). There is a bit of writing in Carol Deppe's "The Resilient Gardener" about how she feeds her flock. I think they're Anconas. I like the premise of the book, which is that gardeners can help their neighbors during times of crisis, and the more a gardener can do with their gardens (which may include ducks), the better able to help themselves and others they'll be.

    I have skipped around in the book and have not read it cover to cover yet, but I found what she wrote about her ducks to be helpful.
